~MR. AGPMAN WORKING LIKE A DAWG~
For those of you who've been following our breakfast room (and ultimately what will be a kitchen makeover) transformation I have a few new pictures for you today! Just in case you missed what's going on you can see even more of what we've done HERE and HERE! Now, if we had hired someone to do all the work for us no doubt it would ALL be done now! But...when you are Do-It-Yourselfers like we are one must work around jobs and life and other things that come up! :)
~GOODBYE TO OUR ORIGINAL BACK DOOR~
Our original back door has been fully enclosed now and the sheet-rock is up. Because the room has it's original hardwood paneling (it's actually that beautiful OLD STUFF that is now hard to find and big $$$) the pieces you see to the right and left of the door have to be removed and one matching piece will then be installed. I'm always amazed at how much TIME all this tedious stuff seems to take. :(
I mean...I'm ready to rip out the old tile now...
(Just so you know...my Mr. AGMan does NOT think any of this stuff is TEDIOUS!!!)
~I'M LOVING IT~
~THIS LOOKED SCARY~
I was sooo happy when that old back door was removed, but honestly...this looked totally scary to me!!!
~NEEDING A TRIP TO THE BEAUTY PARLOR~
(Mollie is looking a bit shag-nasty here!)
Still, our only real problem was that our little Miss MollieGirl (that would be our 5lb Yorkie) became TOTALLY CONFUSED over how to tell us she needed to go outside. For over a week she'd just sit in front of the 'black hole' wondering what to do next. She FINALLY figured out to go to the new French Doors after about three days!
~READY FOR FINISH WORK~
I snapped this picture about a week ago. The windows have now been trimmed out and the paneling around the old back door has been removed. The next step will be the finishing of the wall with new baseboards, trim, paint, etc.
This is all slow-going but we are loving each and every step of our home's transformation! Having the original back door closed up has changed the look of our entire family room. I absolutely LOVE IT!
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your day is blessed!
Love to you...
